great film. the character development is fantastic as well as the dialects. is very good parody at times. the scene in baggage car is brilliant, especially the animals. Mannerisms, dialects all very well studied.

Subject: Hitchcock was Still a Master Back Then
Probably my favorite early Hitchcock talkie. Very suspenseful, and it's easy to overlook how unrealistic it can be, which is definitely a good thing in this case.

Subject: Loved It....
Great film, a little slow getting started, but worth the wait...... Love Michael Redgrave as the annoying Gilbert. Favorite quote from the whole film? "Kick him! See if he's got a false bottom!!"

Subject: Big disappointment
As reviewer robcat said, this movie takes 20 minutes just to introduce the characters. I like to think I'm a patient person, but I have to admit I gave up before I met the last character. There is no plot movement whatsoever for the first 20 minutes - at least.

I can't give this movie the lowest possible rating, but I wonder why not. If I can't even sit through the first half of it before tuning out, I must be saving one star ratings for stinkers that make my eyes water. I know it's Hitch and all, but that doesn't stop me from telling the truth. No doubt it gets better, but I didn't stay around to find out.

Subject: His second best film
His best film was "39 Steps". This film was still very good, though obviously shot on a low budget. The combination of the comedic, romantic by-play between the two lead characters combined with the growing tension of the spy thriller part works well to keep the viewer interested in the film. This is the same technique Hitchcock used so successfully in "39 Steps". In his later films he became formulaic and stiff, and his casting decisions, one-dimensional character development, uninspired, predictable stories, and poor direction were questionable at best, which makes them unwatchable in my opinion. His early films were much superior because his light touch, crisp direction, interesting plots, and thorough character development carry the viewer along and lets the viewer enter into the fun of becoming part of the movie. This movie has interesting twists and turns with the proper mix of suspense, danger, and humor. Download it, watch it, and you won't be dissapointed.

This film is like a breath of fresh air. Every person in it was great.

Subject: Alsacean Hijinks
This is one of my favorite films, though of course it is early Hitchcock, made before he left England and he had not yet developed many of his trademark techniques as a director... Nevertheless, it is great fun--from the singing and dancing, to the skit on back of the train with Michael Redgrave & Margaret Lockwood, to the evil Nazi's who kidnap Ms. Froy played by the insuperable Dame May Witty. As well, the Englishmen obsessed with cricket throughout the film are wonderful. The idea of espionage in the film is so quaint that's it almost vaudevillian.

Camp, precious, winning and absurd.

Subject: Hitchcock, but not perfected yet
An amusing movie, butnot as tightly constructed as Hitchcock's later films. It takes 20 minutes just to introduce the characters and the lady who vanishes, the precipitating event for the whole movie, doesn't do so until about 30 minutes in.
That would be the "McGuffin", the thing that happens tht gives an excuse for all the other more interesting events in the movie to happen.

It's interesting how this film is set in a generic central european country that is not stated to be nazi germany but, we suspect, may represent it.

A very impressive miniature shot opens the film.

Among Hitchcock's early films I'd rate this as better than the original "Man who knew too much" but not quite up to the level of "39 steps"
